File Server Migration


CopyRight2 File Server Migration Software
CopyRight2 is Sys-Manage's file server migration tool that lets you easily migrate network file shares, files, folders, NTFS and share permissions, group and user accounts (including passwords) from source to destination servers, storage solutions or the cloud.

The source and target file servers can be domain members, domain controllers or configured for workgroup mode. It supports migrations within the same domain or across different domains, for example in case of mergers and acquisitions. The possibility to apply prefixes and suffixes to account names, facilitates server consolidations.

It is the #1 file server migration solution with the most features and most responsive support (24/7) at the best price point you will find on the market.

Use the real-time synchronization feature to eliminate user downtime during the cut-over phase. You can leave the software running, or even stop it and resume the synchronization at a later time.

The integrated user profile migration features will make sure that terminal (RDP) users and roaming profile users can login right away to their known environment once they are migrated to the destination domain using their known passwords. The product will automatically translate persistent network connections, update shortcuts and the most recently used file lists stored in the profile on-the-fly while copying the profile.

A built-in block level protocol allows byte level synchronization over high latency WAN connections, for example to migrate to your hosting provider, the cloud or between different clouds. Additionally you can migrate disconnected systems by exporting and importing accounts and file shares through text files and data including NTFS permissions.

It is a comprehensive file server migration solution supporting you in your early planning stages up to the actual migration phase. The template based roll-out planning feature will help you to accelerate the performance of larger scale migrations. It leverages the use of DFS in order to migrate even the biggest file servers or storage systems share-by-share, while maintaining the original UNC namespace. If necessary, the offline migration feature, allows migrations of data and accounts between servers located on disjoint networks.

During the migration of NTFS permissions or file share permissions, CopyRight2 automatically detects if any user or group accounts used within permissions are missing on the destination computer or the destination domain. Depending on the settings it will automatically migrate the missing accounts or prompt the user to decide how to treat those accounts. Beside of the automatic account migrations you can also selectively migrate specific user and/or group accounts, without moving file data, by defining a "User and Group" copy job.

It comes bundled with a royalty free CopyRight2 InfraStructure Reporting license that will allow you to gather all information required for the migration about the source environment from your file servers and domain controllers.

The intuitive graphical user interface allows you to create a copy job for a file server migration with just a few mouse clicks. Simply select the source files and destination folders of your copy job or add a computer or Active Directory scan job to gather live data for planning purposes in the format of your choice (Text, Microsoft Access, Microsoft SQL Server). All jobs created with the CopyRight2 GUI can be run unattended and at a chosen date and time or interval.
Beside of the graphical user interface it is integrated with Windows® Explorer and offers an additional command line interface very similar to the built-in Xcopy command.
CopyRight2 supports Microsoft Windows® 2000, Microsoft Windows® 2003 / 2003 R2, Microsoft Windows® 2008 / 2008 R2, Microsoft Windows® 2012 / 2012 R2, Microsoft Windows® 2016, Microsoft Windows® 2019, Azure File Sync, Azure AD Connect, AWS Storage Gateway for Files, AWS Directory Service, Univention UCS Domain Controller, Microsoft Windows® XP, Microsoft Windows® Vista, Microsoft Windows® 7, Windows® 8.x and Windows® 10. It supports Windows® Cluster Services, a wide variety of network attached storage solutions (NetApp®, EMC® Celerra, VNX & Isilon, Hitachi® HNAS & HDI, NetGear® ReadyNAS, TrueNAS, FreeNAS, ...) and also Linux Samba as source or target server. It works in conjunction with Veritas Enterprise Vault, Tivoli Storage Manager and other file server archiving solutions.

Does it satisfy my migration's requirements?
Does it satisfy my migration's requirements?
To put it short. Yes. In more detail, it supports:
  • file server, Active Directory and IIS HTTP/FTP server migrations.
  • migrations between systems configured for workgroup mode, as domain members or domain controllers and any possible combination of those, for example from a system configured for workgroup mode to a domain member.
  • migrations within the same or across different domains, with/without trust relationships and with/without sidHistory.
  • Windows® servers (certified for Windows® 2000 up to Windows® 2019) and a wide variety of network attached storage (NAS) solutions, such as NetApp®, EMC®, Hitachi®, Synology®, Linux Samba and more as source and target.
  • consolidations, for example a migration from 2 source systems onto 1 target system, including methods to resolve naming conflicts.
  • Windows® cluster services as source and/or target.
  • LAN/MAN/WAN migration scenarios.
  • offline migrations, where source and target are not connected at all.
  • large scale migration scenarios using the built-in rollout planning feature.
  • for MAN/WAN scenarios a block transfer mode, similar to Rsync, reusing existing data on the target if only a few bytes of a file changed, instead of copying the whole file again.
  • share-by-share migrations while maintaining the UNC namespace, utilizing Windows® distributed file system (DFS).
  • a real-time synchronization feature reducing the timeframe needed for the cut-over to minutes. You can literally perform the migration during lunch break if needed.
  • an optional comparison report for files, folders and permissions to properly document the success of your migration.

How is CopyRight2 Licensed?
How is CopyRight2 Licensed?
There are 3 types of licenses:
  • The CopyRight2 Standard Edition is licensed per source and target system (server or NAS). Once a license is activated it cannot be moved to another system. Licenses of target systems can be re-used when those systems become the source of the next migration again. Prices include 2 years of warranty, free updates/upgrades and 24/7 support via email, telephone or Cisco WebEx. For example, if you want to migrate 2 source systems onto 1 target system, you would need 3 single licenses of CopyRight2 Standard Edition.
  • The CopyRight2 Enterprise Edition has a one time fee for unlimited activations and ships with 10 support cases.
  • The CopyRight2 Midrange Edition has a one time fee for up to 50 activations per year and ships with 5 support cases.
  • Additional support for the Midrange/Enterprise Editions can be purchased in our online store or from a reseller. Support cases opened because of a product defect, will not be deducted from your contingent.
